Necessity is the mother of invention, and this classic Italian dish comes out of the need to use up stale bread. Originating in Tuscany, panzanella traditionally combines cubed stale bread with juicy tomatoes, vinegar, olive oil, and sometimes onions and basil. This summery version of the original celebrates the flavors of summer, and features sweet corn, caramelized red onions, and creamy mozzarella for a dish that’s sure to please. Tomatoes are rich in lycopene, which helps protect your eyes and skin from the sun- all the more reason to enjoy them in the summer months.
With over 22,000 miles of coastline, Australian cuisine comprises a bevy of fabulous seafood. These vibrantly spiced prawns showcase that perfectly, and are deliciously offset by this bright and tangy peach salsa. The perfect way to celebrate the summer season, this dish is also full of health benefits. Shrimp provide protein, selenium, and vitamin B12, while peaches contain ample amounts of vitamin C, and can help stave off free radicals in the body. Enjoy this dish with a simple green salad for a colorful and summery meal.
